Meet the PlanetCare Microfibre Filter

The evidence is clear—each time we do a load of laundry, we are flushing microfibres directly into our groundwater and oceans, which are now polluted by 4,85 trillion microplastic pieces.

Sometimes it’s easy to feel helpless in the face of the scale of such a problem as this. But there is a small change now that will make a big difference. 

Enter the the PlanetCare Microfibre Filter. This small filter can be attached to your washing machine and catches fibres of various sizes—from long fibres over 5mm long to fragments smaller than the width of a human hair. 

A single PlanetCare Microfibre Filter cartridge can deal with a month's worth of washing in a typical household—all it requires is to replace the cartridge once a month and you will cut your fibre emissions by 90%. That’s pretty huge.

The cartridge is also fully sustainable—through our Return-and-Reuse scheme, filters are cleaned, refurbished and sent back to you when they’re full. And at the end of its life, the filter will be fully recycled, along with all caught fibres.

As if that wasn’t enough, the filter costs roughly the equivalent of one cup of coffee a week. 

It’s a no brainer. It’s time to say #yesfilter.
